Hanson is no nostalgia act. Nostalgia does not hold up consistently for twenty one years.
It may come back for a moment…a quickly passing trend or a flash of reminiscence for the easier, breezier bygone days. But Isaac, Taylor, and Zac took the ubiquitous pop cultural moment they created with “MMMBop” and fueled their ever enthusiastic fan base with album after album of meticulously crafted and precisely executed American pop music.
In celebration of Anthem, the band’s sixth LP, we recently invited these fair haired idols to brave both our six story walk-up and a scorching hot afternoon to share a slew of their latest songs, including Anthem‘s soulful single “Get The Girl Back”, the organ-tinged rocker, “Cut Right Through Me”, as well as “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin'”, from their 2010 release Shout It Out. In between the brothers discuss how their new music lives up to the spirit that inspired their new album. If you loved Hanson in 1997 you’ll love Hanson more than ever. And if you didn’t?
Well, we suggest getting reacquainted with this Oklahoma based power trio. Just don’t call it nostalgic, ’cause these guys whip up some of the best new music we’ve come across all year.
